LA Neighbors United Comments on Proposed Modified Parking Requirement Districts Ordinance (July 26, 2012):
The proposed ordinance is much improved from the original version. Used judiciously and fairly, it has the potential to be a very useful planning tool.
LA Neighbors United Comments on Revised Modified Parking Requirement
Districts Ordinance (July 13, 2011):
We appreciate the improvements to the proposed ordinance. We respectfully ask policymakers to consider two other issues, in addition to those we have already raised: (1) Regarding Change of Use Parking Standards, we suggest some additional findings are necessary to ensure potentially significant negative impacts on residential neighborhoods are identified and addressed; and (2) Because there is no limit proposed on the amount of allowable decreases in parking requirements for market-rate housing in MPR Districts, this may be a disincentive to create affordable housing.
